Getting your hearing aids professionally cleaned

Why a professional cleaning is smart to schedule at least once a year.

No matter how well you treat your hearing aids — and hopefully you’re cleaning them most every day — it’s a good idea to take them in to your hearing healthcare provider at least once a year for a professional cleaning. Here’s why:

  1. They have the tools and expertise to do a safe, deep clean that removes all the built-up wax, debris and oil without damaging the receivers or microphones.
  2. Just like your car after an oil change and tune-up, you should notice an improvement in how your hearing aid sounds and performs.
  3. Your hearing professional will also be able to inspect your hearing aids for any signs of damage and suggest or provide repairs.
  4. Regular, professional cleanings will help your hearing aids run better, longer.
